As I've been getting ready to go back to school, I've been thinking a lot about my last year and how different things are compared to just three months ago to now. Both physically and emotionally I am much healthier, and I'd have to say that is the biggest difference. During spring semester, I was constantly exhausted and I remember telling my friend that I felt like I was literally dying, and that if that is what being old felt like then count me out. After taking prescription meds for a few months, I was feeling worse than ever and I decided to talk to my doctor about getting a vitamin B12 shot. I know there are people who don't fall for the herbs/vitamins viewpoint, and we don't have to agree on it, but I'm just telling everyone what worked for me. So, I made an appointment with my doctor and told him I wanted a B12 shot after hearing how great it was and after checking it out to make sure there weren't any horrible side effects. This website outlines the benefits of getting a B12 shot (although I wouldn't go by this over a doctor's recommendation, I just thought it outlined clearly what all of my other research said, just more concise). Anyways, it's not instantaneous, but I had a lot more energy and didn't feel like I was dragging all of the time. I definitely recommend getting one if that's how you're feeling, but I would look into it first and make sure it's the right option for you.
